Many editions of this text are issued with the Mirabilia Romae, a brief history of Rome and its features and therefore the Indulgentiae are also often called by that title. The woodcuts and typeface in this edition are almost identical with those used by Stephan Planck in his publications which display borders with the same initials of which Nagler reports the I.S. stands for Jacobus von Strassburg. Sander posits that the cuts were made for Besicken who used them in later publications as well
